Come join the History Department on October 27th as we host a workshop featuring Jairo Ledesma from Career Management Services. Mr. Ledesma will be explaining internships and careers available for those with degrees in History. If you’re close to graduating, a sophomore curious about job opportunities, or a freshman simply interested in hearing what other career paths are available outside academia, stop on by! All undergraduates are encouraged to come, especially those early in their degree!
Dr. Prince, Assistant Professor of History at the University of South Florida, will talk about the ways African-Americans in and around New Orleans remembered Robert Charles in the years after the 1900 race riot in New Orleans. The talk will also look at how the Charles incident inspired a discourse focusing on themes of race, violence, citizenship, and power in the African-American community.
